Enerpac Introduces Portable Hydraulic Toolbox for Safety and Convenience


Enerpac, a global market leader in high-pressure hydraulic tools, has introduced a convenient tool set for the industrial market. The Enerpac Hydraulic Toolbox is a portable tool set that includes all necessary hydraulic components to immediately begin working on any application. The new solution makes hydraulic tools easy to manage while keeping operators safe.

default_enerpacs_hydraulic_tool_box_copyThe Hydraulic Toolbox is a full hydraulic system, including a hydraulic cylinder, a lightweight hand pump with angled gauge adaptor assembly, couplers and hose. The Hydraulic Toolbox is available with several cylinder options, including general-purpose cylinders (Enerpac’s RC-Series), low-height cylinders (the RCS-Series) and Flat-Jac® cylinders (the RSM-Series).

Hydraulic tools are often damaged due to the environments in which they are stored, cutting their operating life short. The box protects hydraulic tools from dust, water, and other environmental contaminants to help keep tools working efficiently and reduce future replacement costs.

“We’ve found that our customers often carry their tools by using the hose or couplers as a handle,” said Tim Kellagher, Americas Marketing Specialist at Enerpac. “This puts additional stress on the components of the tool which can lead to damage and potentially dangerous situations. This durable, easy-to-carry case will help keep you safe and your new tools running longer.”

While the simplistic hydraulic system fits in a case, its uses are versatile and can accomplish a variety of tasks including:

Equipment maintenance and leveling
Pin or bushing removal
Material positioning and fabrication
Enerpac Hydraulic Toolbox has a limited time offer of 20% off through February 28, 2017. For more information and product applications for the Hydraulic Toolbox, visit enerpac.com.

DEWALT® Continues to Expand 40V MAX* System for Landscapers

dcb116_3Battery-Powered Outdoor Equipment Offers GAS PERFORMANCE. GUARANTEED.™

DEWALT® continues to expand its 40V MAX* Battery-Powered Outdoor Equipment at the 2016 GIE+EXPO with the new 6-Pack Charging Station (DCB116) and Pole Hedge Trimmers (DCHT895 family).

The 6-Pack Charging Station from DEWALT is designed to charge the batteries necessary to power DEWALT outdoor power equipment and to eliminate the need for 2-cycle gas mix on landscaping trucks. Plug in the 6-Pack Charging Station to sequentially charge up to six 40V MAX* batteries at a fast rate. Each DEWALT 7.5Ah battery charges in under an hour, and each 6.0Ah battery in 45 minutes. Once one battery is charged, the charger will automatically switch to the next battery, choosing the battery closest to full charge. Each battery compartment includes indicators showing charging status: fully charged, charge in process, or waiting to be charged. The 6-Pack Charging Station is also water resistant and includes a cover to help protect the batteries from outdoor elements and landscaping debris. In addition, the 6-Pack Charging Station provides an organized storage solution for DEWALT 40V MAX* batteries and is optimized for transport with carrying handles.

The Pole Hedge Trimmer is designed to cut through a variety of landscape overgrowth including medium and tall hedges as well as large bushes. With a cut-rate equivalent to that of competitive gas-powered units, the 22” dual-reciprocating, laser cut blades offer sharp shearing with a cut capacity of up to 1” thick branches. The Pole Hedge Trimmer features a telescoping shaft for trimming in compact spaces when retracted, as well as in many hard-to-reach areas when fully extended. An articulating head allows the user to maneuver the Pole Hedge Trimmer to a variety of angles, cutting in 8 different positions, adjusted by 15° increments. This Pole Hedge Trimmer provides a runtime of over 3 hours when paired with a 7.5Ah 40V MAX* battery pack (DCHT895X1). Equipped with the brushless motor and removable gear case cover, the Pole Hedge Trimmer allows for easy serviceability and eliminating gas-related maintenance issues.

dcb116_5The 6-Pack Charging Station will be available in early 2017. The Pole Hedge Trimmer , also available in early 2017 will be offered as a stand alone unit or kitted with one 4.0Ah battery or kitted with one 7.5Ah. The DEWALT 40V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment provides the power, runtime and durability the professional landscaper demands with GAS PERFORMANCE. GUARANTEED™. The DEWALT battery-operated equipment improves workplace efficiency by eliminating trips to the pump, fuel mixing, constant pull starts, minimizes maintenance and provides low noise levels for properties with noise restrictions and cities with bans on noise levels or gas-powered equipment.

DEWALT Outdoor Power Equipment comes standard with a commercial three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. Getting into a battery-powered system has never been easier; premium 40V MAX* 6Ah and 7.5Ah batteries come with an extended 2-year free service contract, eliminating many of the maintenance and gas costs including gas, oil, and stabilizer costs associated with operating gas-powered products.

*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 40 volts. Nominal voltage is 36.
